The City of Roswell Department of Transportation will be hold a public information meeting on the Big Creek Parkway project on Tuesday, January 21, 2014.
The public is invited to view the proposed project, ask questions and provide comment on the proposal from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Mimosa Elementary School, located at 1550 Warsaw Road.
The proposed project is designed to alleviate traffic in the Georgia 400-Holcomb Bridge Road area and better connect the east and west sides of the city.
Big Creek Parkway would be a new roadway, from Warsaw Road just north of Holcomb Bridge Road, and extending east across 400 between the Holcomb Bridge Road and Mansell Road interchanges.
The new road would then connect to the existing intersection of Old Alabama Road and Holcomb Woods Parkway and end at Holcomb Bridge Road and would include a sidewalk and bicycle path.
This meeting is significant because it will present for the first time the particular alignment (location of the proposed road) approved as the Local Preferred Alternative by the Mayor and City Council on June 24, 2013.
The public will be able to view project information, ask questions and make comments. The meeting will be informal.
This project is a long-term project with no identified funding for right-of-way acquisition or construction at this time.
Information from the meeting will be displayed on the City’s website at http://www.roswellgov.com/bcp after the meeting is held.
